Our Projects

Our objective is to engage as many children and young teenagers with nature. We hope to instill a love of the natural world by creating new programmes and opportunities.

We believe, that by experiencing the outdoors first hand, young people can connect with nature which will make a difference to their lives as well as our planet.

“I salute the Cameron Bespolka Trust for finding new ways to engage young people with nature. By creating opportunities to connect people with the environment, the Trust is empowering the next generation”


Chris Packham

“All too often, young people miss out on the chance to see wildlife for real. Perhaps they live in a city and can only dream of seeing nature up close. Or maybe they go to a school that has difficulty justifying trips to natural places. Whatever the reasons for it, too many young people miss out on the chance to see a Kingfisher diving into a pond or a Hare running across a field. So I salute the Cameron Bespolka Trust for finding new ways to engage young people with nature. By creating opportunities to connect people with the environment, the Trust is empowering the next generation - and that can only be good for them and for the future of our planet.”
